Its a HUGE undertaking to do that. LL wasn't willing to tackle the issue
directly years ago and they probably don't have the resources to do it
now. It would have to be a community-lead effort and I'm not sure that
developers are willing to invest the time to refactor the viewer at that
level unless LL will be willing to seriously consider using the
resulting re-architectured viewer.
